The Chinese regime sent more fighter jets into Taiwan’s air defense zone on April 7 in a stepped-up show of force around the island that Beijing claims as its own, as Taiwan’s foreign minister said it would fight to the end if the communist regime attacks.
The democratic self-governed island has complained of repeated military activities by Beijing in recent months, with China’s air force making almost daily forays in Taiwan’s air defense identification zone. On April 5, the Chinese regime said an aircraft carrier group was operating close to the island.
Taiwan’s defense ministry said 15 Chinese aircraft including 12 fighters entered its air defense identification zone, with an anti-submarine aircraft flying to the south through the Bashi Channel between Taiwan and the Philippines.
Taiwan’s air force sent up aircraft to intercept and warn the Chinese away, the ministry added.
Speaking earlier in the day, Taiwan Foreign Minister Joseph Wu said the United States is concerned about the risk of conflict.
“From my limited understanding of American decision-makers watching developments in this region, they clearly see the danger of the possibility of China launching an attack against Taiwan,” he told reporters at his ministry.
“We are willing to defend ourselves without any questions, and we will fight the war if we need to fight the war. And if we need to defend ourselves to the very last day, we will defend ourselves to the very last day.”
China’s Taiwan Affairs Office and the U.S. State Department didn’t respond to requests for comment on Wu’s remarks. China has said its activities around Taiwan are aimed at protecting China’s sovereignty. The United States, which has expressed concern about China’s movements, said its commitment to Taiwan is “rock solid.”

Taiwan is on it’s own.
pedoJoe is a coward and will not lift a finger to help them.
You are right. They may as well fight to the end. The survivors will be exterminated.
The US Bitem Regime is “so concerned..”
Maybe Joe will have Kamia the Hunny write a strongly worded letter to Xi. Or not.
Old idea: Why fight in Southeast Asia when most Americans can’t even find any of the countries on a map?
New idea: Younger Americans can’t find the United States on a map today. Let alone Taiwan.
And most can’t locate their own rear ends with both hands, plus a diagram on their cell phone, a GPS and two friends yelling encouragement.
If they attack, Joey might send them a strong letter of protest.
As million men with rifles and RPGs is no small threat.
IF China could even put a sizeable force on the beach against determined resistance, which is doubtful.
Iwo JIma: 21 sq KM.
Okinawa: 1,200 sq KM
Taiwan: 40,000 sq KM
Kentucky: 42,000 sq KM
The Russians are thumbing their noses at Biden.
The Chinese are thumbing their noses at Biden.
The North Koreans are thumbing their noses at Biden.
Today Iran thumbed its nose at Biden.
How odd none of this happened when Trump was president. We are in for a very rough time. Things are going to go BOOM! real soon and these won’t be the fake “BOOMs” we got from Hannity about the seditionists and treasonists being held to account.
Glad to hear it.
What the heck else can they do? They arent communists and free people do not want to live under totalitarian communism.
Well, ‘the end’ is usually how ling any fight lasts.
Landing on the beaches won’t be hard, there are many beaches, too many to defend. Like Okinawa, getting on the beach will be the easy part.
Taiwan is 25 times as big as Okinawa, with a population of 25 million. If they fight to the last redoubt, it will be quite a battle.
I wonder if they change Kamalas heritage to asian when she talks about asian matters, then back to black when shes focused on domestic chores.
How shes regarded as black when she’s indian and jamaican, i sure as heck dont know how that equation works out.
..rock solid. Period.
JoeBama will do nothing about Chinese aggression because the owe the CCP for their part in stealing the election unconstitutionally via their super bug bomb called covid inducing mail in voting!
“pedoJoe is a coward and will not lift a finger to help them.”
Letting China take Taiwan is the whole ready they got the Big Guy elected.
Taiwan and Japan have been developing military ties. Yes, you read that correctly.
Also, Taiwan has missile assets that place the Three Gorges Dam in range.
CCP Joe wouldn't defend Taiwan if his life depended on it.
